Edition of 500

Retail Price $450

The Birds' Christmas Carol, published in 1886, was the very first book written by Kate Douglas Wiggin, author of many classics, such as Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm and Mother Carey's Chickens. In Carol Bird, critics believe that Miss Wiggin created her most enduring character. For the 1996 Christmas Edition, Lawtons issued the Bird's Christmas Carol. Inspired by Jessie Gillespie's cover illustration, Carol is dressed in a delicately smocked cotton frock trimmed with red ribbons over a red underskirt. Her long blonde ringlets and soft blue eyes set off her delicate complexion. Carol holds three of the books from "Carol's Circulating Library", books from her own collection that she made available to little ones at the Children's Hospital. Carol is all-porcelain and is 14" tall.
